Harry Potter Films to be Honoured at the BAFTA’s

This has to be good news for all of those involved in the Harry Potter franchise as they have been snubbed with so many awards over the years. This announcement comes a few days after news of some of the cast members being disappointed that the films have not received anything on the awards front. Ideally the BAFTA awards should be the ones to reward Harry Potter. As it really has done wonders for the British film industry!

The cast and crew behind the HARRY POTTER franchise are to be honoured with a special award at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) prizegiving.

Potter author J.K. Rowling and producer David Heyman will accept the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema trophy at the ceremony later this month (Feb11).

The hit films, about a boy wizard played by Daniel Radcliffe, will be recognised for showcasing British talent and providing a vast array of jobs for thousands of workers in the U.K.

Radcliffe says, “I am thrilled that the Harry Potter film series is being honoured with this award. I have loved every minute of making these films and to me the real heroes are the crew and the huge team of craftsmen that have made all eight of them possible – this award is a testament to their incredible work.”
